Just Like Starting Over
« on: May 19, 2004, 03:31:27 PM »

I think Just Like Starting Over is one of John's " worst songs " as a solo artist because it's too mainstream & too bland like something Paul would record as a solo artist, it sounds like a 50's pop song from Lennon's youth with its Elvis feel even though " I wasn't too impressed " with it when it was released at the time or now since it's not Instant Karma or Imagine, it was great to have John " back in the spotlight " again since I thought I might see this former Beatle live on tour before he was tragedically murdered but this solo classic isn't one of his finest!

I love it.  It is a great Beatley song, and when it came out I was unaware he was recording again so it was a wonderful surprise (briefly, anyway, until December).

Nothing wrong with that song at all, not a thing.

It's a good song - not his best though. I thought Woman and Watching The Wheels were better. It's always sad listening the Double Fantasy because the music reminds me so much of that December.

It always reminded me that even John Lennon had an "orbison" faze. Personally I love the song. And I would go as far as to say I think you're dead wrong. "Starting over" was one of the BEST Lennon songs. He shows a different side in that song, a vunerability, and you're dumb! lol

I don't believe some of you for a moment because Just Like Starting Over is just a  " mediocre song " by John unlike Instant Karma & Imagine.

Well, I aint that crazy about 'Imagine' to be honest with you. I think this song is alot more pleasing to the ear.

Wayne is VERY provocative, but we shouldn't mind that. Wayne's threads almost always do well. The trouble is, Wayne can get annoyed

 I'm glad someone spoke up and gave an honest opinion of "Imagine." I really love the song, but I'm tired of it being eulogized and proclaimed to be his best song. That's utter rubbish, because no one can ascertain for the general what anyone's best song is.

Personally, I'm a fan of his obscure, lesser-known, lesser-appreciated songs. I LOVE to death things like "Oh My Love" and "Out the Blue" and "Tight A$" and "Nobody Loves You (When You're Down and Out" and "Remember", "I Found Out", "Crippled Inside" and everything that's on Milk and Honey and, God, his demos...they are seriously beautiful.

 He has soooo many gorgeous, gorgeous songs that just send shivers up my spine and what do I hear people say? "Oh "Imagine." I think I could go on the rest of my life not hearing that song again and be fine. But the others? Never take them from me. I guess I'm one of the few, strange John fans. Don't know...

 But anyway..."Starting Over"? I love it. Great fun, great song, who cares if there's no message. People like Paul's music and he rarely says much. If you like a song for whatever reason, that's all that matters.

Starting Over is one of his best in my opinion.......I love Imagine, but I've just heard it so much....that and "Jealous Guy" often prevent me from putting the Imagine album on because I'm a bit tired of hearing those two tracks.....they're amazing songs, but they've just been overplayed for me.
